Surfacism or the radial dispersion of power
"The horizontal protocol embedded within the geometric configuration of the human face renders possible the evasion to the vertical architecture inaugurated between the Sun and the terrestrial inner core, and replicated between parietal bone and sphincter. This perpendicular detour, promoter of locomotion, contact and violence, grants access to surface as a primordial plane of action, from where the prospect of a local transcendence, invariably mechanic and presential, irradiates.The existence of operational possibilities within Earth’s surface is a direct result of the peripheral nature of the region. Besieged by two centres of figurative, gravitational and thermodynamic power, Sun and inner core (5430º), the astral solid’s crust secures a geometrical context for a transversal free association — and therefore, of cosmological disobedience — of matter and narratives by granting the necessary distance to bypass the totalitarian mechanisms of a global vertical vector (macht), and allowing a totality of horizontal manoeuvres of manipulation, traction and friction (puissance).
Opting for polar coordinates instead of the cartesian system (orthogonal) as an analysis — and hence regulation — instrument of space enables not only the determination of a centre — and its antithesis— but also the modelling of information flows, and their morphological mutations. From that perspective, it’s precisely due to its topological role that surface encloses the resulting turmoil of a peripheral dynamism, as this phenomenon relies on the dispersion of a central power that occurs there (inversesquare law)."Diogo Tudela
